Unlike the day before when he started fast and finished slow, Daniel Summerhays did the opposite in Saturday’s third round at the U.S. Open at Erin Hills Golf Course in Wisconsin.
The 33-year-old former BYU All-American who lives in Fruit Heights got off to a terrible start with bogeys on his first three holes and a double bogey at No. 9 for a front-nine 40. However he righted the ship on the back nine with birdies at 13 and 17 for a back-nine 34 and a 2-over-par 74 for the day.
That left Summerhays in a tie for 56th place, one back from his starting position on Saturday, at 3-over-par 219 for the tournament, 15 shots behind leader Brian Harman.
For Sunday’s final round, Summerhays will tee off at 8:46 a.m. MDT with England’s Lee Westwood. Summerhays’ best finish in a U.S. Open came last year when he finished in a tie for eighth place.
